You'll notice dark holes, carved out tombs, throughout Petra. This led early explorers and scholars to see Petra as a cemetery but archeology has shown that it was a well developed metropolis.⠀ Petra, Ma`An, Jordan
Jerash, one of the best-preserved province cities of the Roman Empire outside of Italy is one of many amazing things Jordan has to offer. 🇯🇴 Ruins dating back to the Neolithic Age, indicating human occupation dating back 6500 years, have been found and excavations continue today.
The best part of visiting a country with a local is seeing things you would never find on your own! ⠀ ⠀ This is The Smallest Hotel in the World, located in Al Shobak, Jordan. The man who runs the place, Abu Ali, is the sweetest so make sure to drop in for a tea and say hello!⠀👋🏼
I’ve seen pictures and heard stories about Petra, also known as the Rose-Red City, but nothing prepares you for what you’ll see once you get there. There’s no wonder why it is Jordan’s most treasured and most popular tourist attraction.
